OBJECTIVE To investigate comparatively flow response of resistance arteries to exogenous and endogenous nitric oxide in young adults with high serum cholesterol. BACKGROUND Impaired vascular effectiveness of endogenous and exogenous nitric oxide may be considered to unmask impairment of its anti-atherogenic properties. It may thus represent a valuable early diagnostic index for these young adults at high risk for developing atherosclerosis. METHODS In 10 patients with elevated plasma levels… CONTINUE READING
